Award-winning post house Company 3, a subsidiary of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc., announced today it recently provided a variety of post production services to its first game project, Call of Duty: Black Ops II and concurrently, announced the opening of a new division dedicated specifically to offering color grading and other high-end post production services that will assist in taking game production to the next level of artistic heights.

"The creation of Company 3 Games represents a new level of collaboration between game developers as well as publishers and providers of feature film-level post services," says Stefan Sonnenfeld, President and Founder of Company 3. Sonnenfeld, who has color graded countless feature films and commercials, worked with award-winning game developer, Treyarch, to color grade Activision Publishing Inc.'s next installment of the blockbuster Call of Duty game franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, set for worldwide release next Tuesday, November 13.

"We are excited to have contributed color grading, as well as visual effects and sound services on our first game title for such an acclaimed series," says Malte Wagener, VP of Games, who oversees the division's work from its offices at Company 3's Santa Monica, CA headquarters. "With the amazing level of sophistication in games and the immense talent pool in the feature film world, a tight collaboration of the two spheres is a natural development."

Wagener comes to the position following an extensive career in the video games business. As the director of global business development at Koch Media in Germany, he led that company's global business development and brand management for products including the international game sensation Dead Island. At WEG, a division of CJ Media, in South Korea--the third largest media company on the continent--he led all EMEA gaming efforts, as well as the massive, international eSport cross-promotion known as the World eSport Games.

"I'm very excited to be leading Company 3 Games," Wagener adds. "With the talent and resources of Company 3 and its affiliated companies, we plan to set the new standard for game post production."
